“EXCESS AIR (METAL OXIDE CATALYST) PROCESS” FOR FORMALDEHYDE MANUFACTURE

AQUEOUS FORMALDEHYDE SOLUTIONS (AF-37 / AF-55) & UREA FORMALDEHYDE CONCENTRATE (UFC-85) PRODUCTION

Complete technical Know-How and design / engineering for AF-37 / AF-55 Plants in the capacity range (67 MTPD-400 MTPD) or equivalent Urea
Formaldehyde Concentrate (UFC-85) based on Excess Air (Iron Oxide Catalyst) process can be provided. Formaldehydes are produced by Catalytic
Oxidation of Methanol. A basic process flow diagram is shown below:
EXCESS AIR PROCESS FOR FORMALDEHYDE
As mentioned ATEC has a “General Licensing Agreement” with the renowned International Licensor M/S HaldorTopsoe A/S (Denmark) for the “Excess
Air (Metal Oxide Catalyst) Process” for production of Formaldehyde products. The Company has improved upon and developed cutting edge “State of
Art” technologies for the Metal OxideFormaldehyde manufacturing processes based on decades of experience.
HALDOR TOPSOE / ATEC GENERAL LICENSING AGREEMENT FOR FORMALDEHYDE TECHNOLOGY
ATEC’s preferred Formaldehyde Technology for simultaneous / individual production of AF – 37 /AF-47/ AF – 55 and / or UFC-65 upto UFC-85 is based
on the modern “Excess Air Process of Formaldehyde manufacture” commonly known as the Metal Oxide Process.

ATEC uses its unique “3D CAD Modelling Programs” for precise and highly optimized detailed engineering of Excess Air (Metal Oxide Catalyst) Process
as can be seen from the Plant model and actually built Plant (simultaneous AF-37 / UFC-85 production) photographs shown below :
